If any random unofficial person beyond Microsoft had got their hands on an XBox One even at this stage 2½ months before

the official public launch without permission, and had the balls to post a video of it on YouTube, including a brief glimpse

of his face, TPTB at Redmond would now be calling in the relevant law enforcement teams to deal with it.

 

It's either a clever bit of viral marketing as the article says, or someone is about to be sent to the local metal bar hotel!

I highly doubt they'd release a viral video with such poor content.

 

Also, I'm not sure what there is to like about the UI at this moment. A bunch of green square icons as it stands. Even Windows 8.1 screens are looking better, imo at least. :/

So I guess Ms is now doing viral crap, by pretending someone leaked it. Still a POS.

I doubt the Xbox One just ended up in this guys hands, it must be a clever marketing ploy by Microsoft. If not, Microsoft is probably red faced with steam coming out of their ears screaming to authorities to find this person.

Interface looks like the same shi* as WP8 and W8. Not aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

Hope there is a more easy way than kinect to navigate through the tiles more easily because going over them one by one on a row/column using a pad/stick is annoying.

Well you can use the controller, but I do remember something being said about the ability to use SmartGlass to control your XB1.

Saw it working at GamesCom, all the other tiles didn't do anything there either but induce a loading screen or a loading icon. The multitasking looks to be impressive though.

Not really liking it, but it will do. I want to see more use of the kinect gestures though.

You use the bumpers to jump between groups not go to it one tile at a time, it's the same as the 360.   Besides,  this looks like the same beta UI they've been showing in public for a while now yet they showed a newer version behind closed doors at GamesCon that no ones actually talked about as far as looks go.

It looks like absolute crap, just like Win8 and WP8. MS really needs to ditch this Metro crap and go back to the drawing board, because it looks like complete GARBAGE!!!

Looks much more responsive than the current gen consoles (as it should be).

 

And the interface looks far superior to any other interface that I would find displayed on an average persons smart TV, which is one of the things the XB1 is trying to replace. Some stiff competition from Sony I think though in that particular role, especially with that Vita TV thing. I wonder if those Xbox TV unit rumors are still true?
